In a shocking turn of events, Woman of pressdog® Lindy Thackston has been replaced as pit reporter on NBC Sports (formerly Versus). Word came out Monday during the NBC Sports presentation at the State of IndyCar events.
Initially, the NBC Sports rep said "everyone would return" and they were adding Townsend Bell as a pit reporter, according to tweets from the event. Lindy (@LindyThackston), however, soon tweeted that she would not return.
"That's the TV business, folks ... been an honor to have spent 3 years in @IndyCar pits," Lindy tweeted.
Some fans floated the idea of talking NBC Sports into reversing their decision. Love the sentiment, but it's a long shot at best. May be time to move on. And, by the way, getting fired from my day job in 2007 turned out to be the best thing that ever happened in my professional life.
So, Lindy: YOU GOT SCREWED. Thanks for everything. IndyCar won't be the same without you. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
Feel free to add your well wishes to Lindy below ..
